This Friday I found myself 7 km from Inner City Copenhagen, just outside Hellerup Parkhotel. Looking forward to an overnight stay; to be spoilt, to a little me-time, and also to meet up with good friends later in the evening.
I was greeted with lovely bubbles on ice and the gourmet book of Prince Henrik of Denmark, “Fit for a royal Dane”. Nice welcome!
So what did I do next? Kick off my snowy white boots, open the champagne – and ahhh, sit down in one of the comfortable chairs, relax and enjoy a wonderful sip, telling myself cheers and just thrive in the joy of anticipation.
Then, after 45 minutes of taking it easy, inspecting the beautiful hotel room with all necessities and more, I like – including a massive waterbed, which actually was unexpectedly firm and sturdy, later on it made me sleep like a princess, together with the luxurious and heavy duvets – I decided to wear my beloved Chanels:
In the hotel restaurant Chubby Boys, I enjoyed a real American dinner, together with a friend. We’re talking man food with lots of meat, and of course cole slaw and melon salad. And don’t forget to order the chili fries, which goes with a tasty garlic dip. Love it.
After spending hours having a good time at Chubby Boys, we decided to have a night cap at Værtshuset Sankt Peder, just a short 5 minute walk from Hellerup Parkhotel. Here you meet up with the locals, and enjoy classic Danish food and drink.
Then it was time to go home, and spend the night in the lovely comfort of Hellerup Parkhotel.
More photos from the hotel in the below, but let me just list the top 3 reasons, why I think you should consider Hellerup Parkhotel your hotel partner, next time you visit Copenhagen:
Reason 1 – The hotel itself: Located in one of the most prosperous areas in Denmark, enjoy the calm, luxurious, elegant and warm welcoming atmosphere of the hotel. Not a typical family hotel, but I think it’s perfect if you’re a couple, maybe two or more couples traveling together, alone – or with tweeny/teenager kids.
Reason 2 – Perfect starting point for exploring outer Copenhagen: The amusement park Dyrehavsbakken, Louisiana Museum of Modern Arts… either you come by car or you rent a car (free parking at the hotel), make sure to widen your Copenhagen perspective; this is Copenhagen, too. And when you’re back at the hotel, make sure to take that 5 minute walk to Værtshuset Sankt Peder, and enjoy a cold beer together with the locals.
Reason 3 – Explore Inner City Copenhagen: Oh yes, this is a mandatory one. The hotel is a mere 20 minute drive by car from the vibrant life of central Copenhagen – easy to park in one of the many parking lots, for instance the one in shopping center Magasin du Nord. Or, you can easily go by train, bus or taxi.
